Mommy of twins
Tahereh Mafi's writing skills are on full display with the debut of her first book SHATTER ME. Wow, just...wow! What a read and so completely not what I expected (in a good way). This is one of those rare reads that truly catches you off guard. What I was (happily) expecting with this new ya novel?..To be honest...the usual light teen romance with some sort of paranormal twist. What I got was, well...so, so much more. Mafi definitely has a new fan in me.
I didn't want to put SHATTER ME down once I started it and cannot wait for the next installment. I don't really want to go into the plot here and risk spoiling anything but if you're super curious, keep reading for spoiler and a taste of what to expect with this captivating book...
The best way I can think to describe SHATTER ME, is a beautifully written dystopian novel with an x-men(ish) story for the 21st century, full of emotion, danger and adventure!
Truly a fantastic read with an equally fantastic narrator.. And if this initial book is any indication as to what's to come, the Shatter Me Series is one to be reckoned with!
